Tennis legend hits the court wearing Google Glass

Though the Google Glass has been designed for a number of tasks and it has proven to help you out with multiple things but anyone would know that it is not such a good idea to put on the Glass gear while engaging in any sports activity and trying to cover a sports event while having it on you is a big NO. It seems like the tennis star Roger Federer had to find that out the hard way.

The tennis player recently posted a video on his Youtube Page in which he was playing tennis while wearing the Google Glass. The video is actually made up from a couple of shots from the cameraman on the field mixed up with the shots taken by the Glass worn by Federer. This turned out to be a big disaster and anyone would guess why. The shots from the cameraman were neat and stead for obvious reasons but the ones from the Glass were more like a roller coaster video with the footage being so jittery that it is almost impossible to watch without getting dizzy.

We are not saying that the Google Glass was at fault here but like every other device, this one too has its own limitations and not every device can be made to perform every task. A camera on your head while moving around recklessly is certainly going to bring about such results.

That’s not likely going to happen with Android Wear, however. The first clue was when Dave Singleton, Google’s Android Engineering Director, shared more Android Wear details on stage Wednesday at ...

How do you make a computer that people will want to wear on their face? “You have to make it light,” says Isabelle Olsson, the lead designer of Google Glass, the computer-equipped eyewear. “You can’t expect people to wear goggles all day long.” Over years of trial and error, Olsson guided Glass through hundreds of bulky prototypes to its current sleek (if not necessarily stylish) look. Here’s how Google’s computer went from goggles to Glass. 2010: The first Glass prototype “was literally ...
